It has been a 54 year adventure – turning six 18th century properties into this rambling Hotel. We have created for our guests an enviable collection of original art, nestled into orchid filled patios, roof terraces and historic rooms, not to mentioned the exotic birds and nesting locals flying through.
However, with all this artistic plus, I need to mention things each guest should know before booking.
Our floors are uneven bricks, punctuated with winding narrow stairs. The high brick ceilings rest on ausubo wood beams which have been hand hewn from trees grown centuries ago.
You must be more interested in history than fancy new gadgetrys in spacious bathrooms. We do not have elevators or televisions.
Of our 25 rooms only 6 are outfitted with King beds. Rooms are not large enough. There are 9 Queens and 9 doubles.
If you have allergies or difficulties walking perhaps this is not the place for you.
We will try to accommodate your requests but due to popularity we are full on week ends, holidays and during high season.
Room assignment happens the day of your arrival based on best available and rooms under repair.
We have no parking to offer guests, only a private driveway to unload luggage.
You will enjoy however a luxurious number of private gallery spaces which are open to all registered guests. I boast of my 10 sitting areas, 9 interior gardens and the Top Deck, with a breathtaking view.
Looking forward to sharing my home,
Welcome to the Gallery Inn. You have entered history! As my home for 55 years, this eighteenth century architecture offers a rambling labyrinth of gardens, patios and sitting places, a veritable museum full of original works. We offer our guests 5 magical levels, filled with treasures to explore. Many of the original paintings are exhibited where they were created and are of The Gallery Inn.
Enjoy 15 interior gardens and 12 private guest sitting areas.
We are the Steinway Society of Puerto Rico. You may hear our students and visiting pianists rehearsing at any of our 3 pianos. The Steinway Spirio, located on the first level in the Cannon Club is the first in the Caribbean. On it you may hear actual performances by Rubenstein, Lang Lang or Gershwin, to mention a few of the more than 800.
Thank you for choosing The Gallery Inn.
Jan D’Esopo, artist and owner.
